What a lovely Christmas book ... just oozing Christmas spirit and oodles of feel-good factor. Angie has spent the last few years living in the warmth of California; she expected to be there for this festive season too, but then finds herself out of a job, a relationship and a home all within the space of a week. She heads home to her mother in New England, determined to keep her chin up and move on with her life. With no-one rushing to hire her for her talents over the holiday season, she picks up a job at the local mall, and finds herself frequently bumping into a man she first met in an embarrassing situation and can't deny there is an attraction - but she is determined not to jump out of the frying pan and into the fire . . . So many people head home for Christmas each year with hopes in their hearts for a peaceful time with their families and this novel capitalises on that. It's a really good read encompassing all the good things of the season: happiness, sparkle, festive food - albeit with an Italian flavour - family, romance, and a healthy dose of Christmas spirit! Beautifully written, with plenty of ups and downs to keep interest, this flows really well and is an easy and enjoyable read - and one I immersed myself in. I do love a Christmas romance, and this one fits the bill perfectly. A well-penned novel which will appeal to all those who like to bury themselves in Christmas reads at this - or any other - time of year, and well worth the four stars I'm happy to give it.
Let me say this...I LOVED IT... Nick was charming without being overly so. Angela was a sweetheart, yet not over the top. Together, they were a potential match made in heaven. From the initial meet cute to their sparkage, the casual encounters to their meaning filled glances, you couldn't help but root for them despite a few glaringly obvious similarities between this and her last relationship. I was full on heart involved with the story and when push came to shove, I'm glad they were each made of stronger stuff than they appeared because that ending was SO up in the air. ...except for one little thing. That one little thing was kind of a combo. Although I loved the story, I did kind of feel like there was one (or two) many would-they-wouldn't-they obstacles to their relationship...and those very same situations were a tad predictable. All in all though, I enjoyed my time between the pages. It's a sweet and clean Romance perfect for those wishing to indulge in a little holiday spirit sans alcohol or calendar page infusion. Oh and Nick, you're totally right...Charlie is SO worth holding out for the right one. ;) **eARC received for review; opinions are my own
